Teaching with unique collections provides resources, an online showcase, and a virtual setting for teaching and learning in many disciplines. It features objects, books, maps, manuscripts, works of art and other items from the university’s Prints, Rare Books and Rare Music collections, Grainger Museum,  University of Melbourne Archives and Ian Potter Museum of Art.

The site gives students and teachers tools to help them use collection objects as memory aids and springboards into exploration and discussion. It also strengthens connections between students, academics and collections managers, and adds a further dimension to the dynamic role of Arts West in the university’s curriculum.
